Harrison: Week 11 predictions
Now, Dobbins has drawn the attention of the NFL. The linebacker, who was flagged on the play, was fined $30,000 by the league for the helmet-to-helmet collision.
Other fines from around the NFL:
» Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton didn't fare too well in his team's 36-14 loss to the Denver Broncos, taking quite a few hits. Broncos linebacker Von Miller was fined $21,000 for a hit on Newton, while defensive lineman Kevin Vickerson was docked $15,000 for a horse-collar tackle on the Panthers signal-caller.
» The Indianapolis Colts' tilt against the Jacksonville Jaguars certainly was chippy, with two Jaguars and one Colts player drawing fines. Jaguars defensive lineman Terrance Knighton and safety Dawan Landry were fined $21,000 and $10,000, respectively, for late hits. Colts linebacker Jerry Hughes was dinged with a $21,000 fine for a late hit as well.
» Usually models of discipline, the New England Patriots lost their composure (and subsequently some cash) a bit against the Buffalo Bills. Cornerback Alfonzo Dennard and linebackers Brandon Spikes and Jerod Mayo were all fined for late hits. Spikes was docked $25,000, Mayo $10,000 and Dennard $7,875.
